So now you can shower while a CG chick made up of 18 polygons stares at you with her breasts. Naturally, most gaming nerds frequent gyms, so this must be the most elaborate and effective campaign ever! Gamefront

  • Who will carry on my PlayStation 2 adventures after I'm gone?
    "I'll admit, I've had a good run. Done pretty much everything I wanted, accomplished almost everything I set out to do. I fought my way to the top of the criminal hierarchy of two cities, saved the world from unspeakably evil magical and technological conspiracies, went to six Super Bowls, and unified ancient China under three different dynasties. It's a legacy any man would be proud of, yet it is one that raises an obvious question: Who will carry on my PlayStation 2 adventures after I'm gone?" The Onion

  • Sony unveils PlaystationX
    Now cool tech stuff is suddenly white? Can`t they make up their minds?As a company now seemingly interested in blowing everyone's minds with crazy new announcements, Sony revealed the PlaystationX today (effectively making everyone's use of the PSX acronym to describe the original Playstation useless) - a console not to be targeted for the videogame industry, nor to be published by SCE. The unit will integrate games, music, and movies by building on PS2 technology and coming with a DVD writer and 120gb disk drive, along with the ability to download media from the internet. Currently the system is set for a release in Asia late this year, with its arrival in NA and Europe early 2004. Gamefront has preliminary shots of the cum-tinted beast of a machine. Bloomberg
